John Cantrell has been on the city council for years and is our back up Mayor should anything happen to Mayor Thompson. He's also lived in Morganton most of his life and has a great love for the area. We talk to him about his background & experiences, his opinions on the SBI investigation against Gary Leonhardt and the empty city council seat, and how the younger generation of Morganton can more effectively engage with the city. During the intro we address the closing of the Mimosa Lanes bowling alley and the misinformation spread by the owner and local media.
